Amidst holiday celebrations, flags at the Tunica County Courthouse and across the national flew at half staff until sunset on Dec. 18, 2012 in honor of the victims at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut.
Town going green
After tearing into all the gifts under their Christmas trees next Tuesday, town of Tunica residents will find the usual extra dumpster on the north end of Town Hall to accommodate any trash overflow. But this year, there's an alternative to consider: instead of adding your empty boxes and torn wrapping paper to the local landfill, a recycling bin is now available.
Williams celebrates 100th birthday
If I had been born at another day and time, I wouldn’t be here to pay tribute to my mother, Emma Louise Williams.
I also wouldn't be around to (when I go over to give her a bath) see her big toothless smile and hear her say, “Hey Baby Dear” (the name she calls me).
I wouldn’t be able to see the covers she has folded around her waist thinking they are an apron full of turnip greens that she has picked for dinner.
Sisters carry on legacy
Since as early as they can remember, sisters Kate Thomas and Angela Morris have made time in the kitchen a regular part of life.
Growing up in Tunica County, the sisters were introduced to cooking by their mother but also gained knowledge of the culinary arts from their grandparents and a family maid.
“I was probably five or six,” recalled Thomas of one of her most memorable experiences as a child. “We lived in Dundee and we had a maid named Mama Mandy and she made the best greens and tea cakes. We went to her house one time and they had a hog killing. They used every part of the pig and made sausage, ham, cracklings – everything. That was something I remember well, but I can’t ever remember not cooking.”
